Counseling falls within the group of helping professions, such as medicine, social service, and others, as these professions share a common goal, which is to help others become more compatible and effective. The college sought to provide counseling services to students in general, and to students who suffer from some educational and psychological problems and life pressures in particular through the counselor office, as all interviews with the counselor are private and completely confidential and are not shared with any party in the college.
